Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

63 yards on an elk stuck him hard both lungs.. I now hunt traditional the modern bow is like a rifle anymore they keep geting more and more powerful every year. I went traditional for the challenge I like to be up close and personal give that animal the best chance to survive the compound bow takes alot of that away.. I only shoot 25 to 30 yard shots with my recurve

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Congratulations ! Obviously you practice at that range or longer to feel
comfortable shooting that distance.

Practice,practice and practice.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

I find it a little disturbing that people are taking 100 yard shots with a bow. One its not ethical to it's just stupid that's why I hear stories about animals walking around wounded and in some cases they still have an arrows stuck in them... its just a foolish move,

You are certainly welcome to you opinion. Opinions are like the rain, each one
is different and every person has several.

Keep you powder dry, if your lucky enough to have some.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

90% of my bow hunting has been for whitetail deer so long shots are very uncommon in the thick hardwoods where I hunt. I did kill a buck at 49 yards once out in an open bean field. I would say 75% of the 50 or 60 whitetails that I have taken with a bow have been under 20 yards. That is the way I like it. I killed 2 elk over the years (both in Wyoming) and those were both under 30 yards. Muley bucks and black bears in Idaho have all been under 30 as well. I practice out to 60 but have not had that perfect opportunity to shoot that distance comfortably. It is tough to do that when you are stiff and cold from sitting in a stand for hours.
